Teen Discovers Lost Mayan City

William Gadoury of Quebec came up with the theory that the Mayan civilization chose the location of its towns and cities according to its star constellations.

He found that Mayan cities lined up exactly with stars in the civilization’s major constellations.

William Gadoury made a link between the location of Mayan cities and the civilization’s major constellations.

    INCREDIBLE kids !!! I hope the right kid or persons get the credit for the find, too many times other people take the credit for someone else’s work. This is really incredible. This kid has a career path already chosen for him.
